That’s One Sweets’ Beard

We met Sweets also last week at Goosetown Tavern where he was slinging drinks and putting up with the rowdy and raucous bingo crowd. Sweets is a Denverite through and through and has been growing his beard for about two and a half years; it was three inches longer until recently but his beard was getting too long and so he was forced to scale it back some. His fiance is in favor of his beard, and we definitely have to agree with her good taste. Sweets plays up his beard in costume as well, as he was a Viking this year for Halloween, which seems a very fitting choice. Make sure to stop by Goosetown soon, have a drink, play some bingo, and admire Sweets awesome beard!

Bingo Beards

We met Hunter (right), Austin (left), and their neighbor and bingo sidekick Mallory, at Goosetown Tavern during Bingo night last week.  Austin and Hunter were college roommates at CU Boulder and now they and neighbor Mallory reside in the Congress Park neighborhood in Denver. Hunter started growing his awesome beard during No Shave November last month, and it has grown into a fantastic Decem-beard. Austin began growing his Amish-like beard a year and a half ago, and his beard has been inspired by mystical/magical direction, as he swears he sucked on a dying unicorn's horn and its last wish was for Austin to grow an Amish beard, so, naturally, he obliged (you can't turn down a dying unicorn's last wish, after all). In addition, Austin, who grew up in Southern California but was born in Colorado, swears the unicorn presented him with a bouquet of lilies, a packet of glitter, and a lifetime supply of pink and purple Nerds, not to mention blessed him with 7 fortunes in 2013, which one, obviously, is to grow an amazing beard. We're not sure what the whole truth is, but we can vouch that both of their beards were awesome.  And next time at Bingo, they're sure to win!

A Bearded Observation

Boozy shakes & manly beards. We love Steuben's! While doing our bearded due diligence and checking up on the progress on one previously documented bartending beard (more on that later), we stumbled (perhaps literally) upon this awesome view. Thanks to his smokin girlfriend (sorry, ladies) we have some better than iphone quality photos to display. Bryan told us he's been growing this dream beard on and off for the past 12 years. He combs it whenever possible, usually in his cube, and whatever product goes in his hair goes in his beard. He considers his beard his "contemplation companion". We also learned that this beard is considered a local celebrity and he's often asked to have its picture taken. Needless to say, he wasn't too shocked when approached by us...only that this site wasn't created sooner. Nice work, Bryan!

Hogshead Beard

We found Rick and his great beard behind the Hogshead Brewery taps at the Denver Beer Festivus on Sunday. Originally from San Francisco, Rick and his beard first came to Colorado in 1993. He started growing his beard again about five months ago when he and his wife moved back to Denver from Malaysia after living there for three years. Rick hates shaving, and even though his wife doesn’t like kissing him with his beard, he still sports it proudly. Rick and his beard have been managing Hogshead Brewery for about three months, and we highly recommend stopping into the brewery, saying hi to Rick, and sampling the delicious Gilpin Black Gold beer—you won’t be disappointed with the brew or the beard!

All in the Family Beard

Josh was another beard spotted at the Denver Beer Festivus in Civic Center Park on Sunday.  Pictured with Josh and his amazing beard are his father on the left, who was visiting from Lincoln, Nebraska for the weekend (and beard a striking resemblance to Sean Connery), and Josh’s brother on the right, Jarrett, who greatly assisted in Josh’s beard interview. We learned Josh has had his beard for the past decade, and has been growing a beard since he was 15 years old.  Jarrett used to have a rockin’ beard, too, but because of fear of bird attacks he cut back.  Due to Jarrett’s top-notch interviewing skills, we learned that Josh has never been attacked by flying objects because of his beard, but he did recently have a sparrow trapped in his house and it came perilously close to nesting in Josh’s fantastic beard.  Luckily, it seems he was left unscathed. But, birds beware: we can’t imagine the beard power if all three of these gentlemen grew their beards out!

Big Choice Beard

Zach was another bearded gem we encountered at the Denver Beer Festivus on Saturday. Zach is a brewer at Big Choice Brewing in Broomfield, and started growing his beard about three months ago when he decided to break into the brewing industry. He’s still a newbie to the Denver area, being here about a year, arriving via Dallas. Obviously, local beard fans are very lucky he made the switch to D-town. Zach boldly declared he is never going to stop growing his beard until he retires, or dies first. We admire such beard dedication!

Metal Brewery Beard, It’s TRVE

We had the pleasure to meet Nick at the Denver Beer Festivus sponsored by Imbibe.com on Saturday in Denver. Nick is the proprietor at TRVE Brewing Company located at Second and Broadway, which specializes in making great brews AND playing metal music. Nick, originally from the east coast, started growing his beard around 2006, and has had his current beard about six months. His favorite thing about his beard is the attention it gets him, and deservedly so!  TRVE Brewing Company is currently open Wednesday through Saturday, but in January you can enjoy a brew there on Sundays, too.  We encourage you to drop by sooner than later—it’s not everywhere you can enjoy a great beer, metal music, and admire an awesome beard.

Beauty Beard

Hello Beauty Bar! Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised to meet this fair feathered friend at a bar we thought was known for mani's and martinis. Tucker told us this beard just had his 6 month birthday. He has his own beauty regimen-he shampoos, conditions and combs his beard and he particularly loves the flash 'o grey that it displays. He also appreciates that he is able to conceal his facial expressions. Nice try, Tucker---we can tell you're grinning with pride.

Beard Lust for the Holidays

We happened upon Will and his long and luxurious beard on Friday night at the SIE Film Center (formerly the Colfax Film Center) where he works.  He’s been growing his beard for about 13 months, and again, laziness is a key factor to the production of Will’s awesome beard, not-to-mention he’s blessed with exceptionally speedily beard growth. Originally from Southern Illinois, Will, who lives in Denver now, told us his beard is currently the longest it’s ever been, and his lovely wife Rebecca certainly approves; at their wedding last year they even played the song “Beard Lust” by the band Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. Trust us, you should queue up that song ASAP, it’s totally worth a listen!  Thanks Will!

Other Worldly Beard

Ryan was another beardie we were lucky enough to meet at the Of Monsters and Men show in Boulder last week.  Ryan’s had his beard for about four years, and again, laziness in reference to shaving is the main contributor to his handsome beard.  Ryan is another wonderful Colorado native beard: he now lives in Boulder, but grew up in the Littleton area. While growing out that amazing facial mane, he works as a mechanical engineer for the University of Colorado in satellite and space weather research.  We’d certainly vouch that his beard is out of this world!
